RI DataHUB - Multi-agency Longitudinal Data System
The RI DataHUB is a multi-agency longitudinal data system for anyone interested in the well-being of people in Rhode Island. The DataHUB brings together data sets from multiple federal, state and local sources. Data are currently gathered from local partnering public agencies including: the RI Department of Education (RIDE), the RI Department of Health (HEALTH), the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education (RIBGHE), the RI Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF), and Providence Public Schools (PPSD). National sources include the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Census. Making Connections Providence is piloting programmatic data from local service providers, and discussions with additional data partners are on-going. This integrated and coordinated data system will build the capacity of community and state agencies to plan and deliver appropriate services to Rhode Islanders.
The visualization software (WEAVE) integrated into the web portal is in development by the Open Indicators Consortium (OIC), of which RIDE is a member. Under RIDE’s membership, ProvPlan participates in the development of the WEAVE software. DataHUB infrastructure has been developed to be extremely flexible and can be deployed to answer a far broader set of data queries and policy questions.
